The Annual Friday Night Turkey Shoots traditionally held by the Jefferson VA Ruritan Club at the Jeffersonton Community Center will be held this fall. Rumor has it that the first shoot will be Friday, October 3, 2014. Plans are for ten Turkey Shoots to be held this season.
More details will follow to confirm, or advise of cancellations, or corrections…..
The decision to hold the Holiday Bazaar resulted from many vendor requests from two Craft and Yard Sales held earlier in the year.
The Ruritans will be selling food inside the community center. Proceeds from the food sales and table rentals will help to finance contributions to local charities and services.
Ample off-street parking is available in the adjacent parking lot. Restrooms are located inside.
Vendor set-up starts at 6am; doors open to customers at 8am. All vendor spaces for the Holiday Bazaar are indoors. For more information, or to rent a table call 540-349-2310.
